Garage Conversions in Croydon
Garage conversions in Croydon have become extremely popular as homeowners look to increase the usable living space in their house. If you are thinking about the same, converting your garage could give you valuable office space, extend your kitchen, or even add an extra bedroom to your home.
Whether you have an integrated garage or an external garage, no planning permission is required to proceed with a standard garage conversion, so long as the conversion won’t extend your house outward. This applies to all houses that are not listed (in which case, you may require listed building consent).
Because your garage is already built, the amount of work involved in a garage conversion isn’t as much as you would think. The floor and roof will need raising to match your house, and the walls will need insulating and building up, but the process isn’t inherently complex for a specialist builder and contractor.
How much does a garage conversion in Croydon cost?
Garage conversions in Croydon cost anywhere from £8,000 to £15,000, so if you have budgeted £10,000 for your garage conversion, you won’t be far off. The price depends on the square footage of the room and what you want doing.
A standard garage conversion will include reconfiguring the external wall, raising the floor and roof level to that of the house, insulating the walls and roof, plastering the walls and roof, installing electrics and installing heating, and integrating radiators and electric appliances. Flooring, underfloor heating and installing a suite (such as for a bathroom) will increase the cost of your garage conversion.
How long does a garage conversion take?
Most Croydon garage conversions take 2 to 3 weeks to complete. You can reasonably expect yours to take 3 weeks at a minimum.
If the work involves knocking through one or more of the garage walls (for example, to extend your kitchen), building up a new roof, fixing structural issues or digging, then the work is likely to extend up to a month and sometimes more. This can be offset by a skilled team, but you should allow a month for the project.
